Alicia and her husband were “bitten by the Disney bug” after bringing their two children to Walt Disney World for the first time in 2009. In 2016, they became DVC members at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, and recently they’ve added a new home resort – Disney’s Riviera Resort! For their family, the Deluxe Studios that sleep five, proximity to Hollywood Studios, and 50-year contract length were the best aspects for Disney Vacation Club’s newest resort.

This episode leads our Disney's Riviera Resort review mini-series. The Riviera Resort is one of the most controversial resorts in Disney history due to the new resale restrictions implemented with this resort. Long-time DVC members and fans of resale are concerned that the resale restrictions will significantly impact the market value of Riviera contracts. Consequently, a lot of members see Riviera as a very poor value proposition. In today's episode, we meet Micah Wyss, the founder of MousePerks.com, which is arguably the most value-driven content created by a Disney fan. Micah explains his rationale behind purchasing Riviera. We will hear from more Riviera owners in the series and end with a Riviera review episode.
